The Coalition of Northern Groups (CNG) on Thursday said it will hold President Muhammadu Buhari responsible if any northerner falls victim of the consequences of the concerns they raised about the safety of Fulani herdsmen in the southern part of the country.

Recall that Buhari told Fulani herdsmen to ignore Northern elders’ call to vacate southern Nigeria.

But, in a statement in Abuja, the group’s spokesman, Abdul-Aziz Suleiman said though they welcome the president’s assurance, they were not lost in the fact that the lives of their kinsmen were under threat in the southern part of the country.

“CNG wholeheartedly welcomes the assurance given by Mr. President and his government to protect and guarantee the safety of all Nigerians anywhere they are including the threatened herdsmen in the South.

“We, however, wish to remind Mr. President and the government that Northerners would hold them fully responsible should any one of them fall victim of the consequences of the concerns we raised,” he said.

Suleiman said it was amazed at the denial of southern leaders that they did not declare war on the herders as a result of the killing of the daughter of an Afenifere chieftain by unknown assassins.

Meanwhile, the group in conjunction with the Northern Elders Forum had asked Fulani herdsmen to immediately return to the north as their security was no longer guaranteed in the southern part of the country.
